DTA and AAOT Degrees

Eastern participates in Direct Transfer Agreements (DTA) with all community colleges in Washington and Oregon and with specific community colleges in Idaho and Montana. (In Oregon, the agreement is called an Associate of Arts Oregon Transfer, or AAOT.)

What the DTA or AAOT Means for You

If you're a student who earned an approved degree from a participating community college, you can take advantage of some serious benefits when you choose to finish your bachelor's degree at EWU.

  • Automatic admission. If you earned your AA from a community college in Washington or Oregon or from select community college in Idaho or Montana, you will be automatically admitted.
  • General Education Core Requirements. You already passed Writing 101. We're not going to make you pass it again. In fact, you'll be done with most, if not all, of your lower division GECRs. Transfers students with a DTA typically have to take international studies or cultural and gender diversity courses.
  • Junior standing. You'll still be a new student, you'll start your Eastern career as a junior.
  • Peace of mind. When you plan ahead, you can prepare your EWU bachelor's degree by taking courses that are prerequisites or requirements for your intended major.
